SILVER AND BLUE W' MV :Il son Moore was very successfully managing the campus while Mr. Broughton Walton was engaged in farming here. Mrs. Walton, the form- er Lucy Keith, was a teacher in the science department. Margaret Cole- man, librarian at the girls' school. Mr. Herman Clark, who was a proud old bachelor, had charge of the dairy. We discovered that we were in time to attend the annual Alumni Banquet at which we found a repre- sentation of 93W of the class of 1930. We were addressed by Hon. Edwin Hyatt, who gave a detailed account of each member of the'class of '30, some having won world-wide and imperishable renown. After listening to the accomplishment' and successes of our classmates, Miss Berry remarked, "I am glad to know that the boys and girls of 1930 have helped me to realize my dreams." WILL ln behalf of my client, the class of 1930 of the Berry Schools, State of Georgia, U. S. A. I hereby call your attention to her last will and testament. She being of sound mind, memory and understanding, wishes to bequeath to her nearest friends those gifts which she has collected as she has travelled through life. She requests that those who receive these gifts will be faithful to the trust. Item l We generously and freely be- queath to the witty but yet unworthy class of 1931 the name Seniors which they have yearned for so long. With this name goes the many privileges and rights which are numberable. Our love, sympathy and good will, we fiing out to you, hoping that your standard will be high. Item Il We bequeath to "Double Red" Kinzey Angle's financial ability, and his hit with Mr. Beard goes to "Wooden Head" Owens. To "Pea- nut" Watson goes Arnett"s ability as an orator. His bass voice goes to Hal Smith on the condition that he dosen't disturb any other parties while practicing. Edd Barnett's long- ging to attend every social goes to Rev. Joe Lewis. 'Said party must not miss a social if he does without rea- son for not attending, them this longing must be passed on to some other who is capable of following direction. Hem lll "Valet" Barnett regretfully be- queaths to "Fuss" Colquitt his ability to get a date for Senior Day at the "Y" reception in the fall. To "Brave Admiral" Jeter goes "Dad" Lowery's old cob pipe and tobacco habitg with these goes Barnetts art of running because they will be useful on dark nights when a slow runner isn't' in the race. "Puddin" Blackstock's hit with Miss Anderson goes to West on con- dition that he dosen't argue with her. "Goofie" Bolt bequeath to "He Haw" Sloan his Firing, provided he does not fire up any more than twice a week and not less than once a week. "Mod- est" Coates wills his pleasing person- ality with the girls to Harold Babb. To Winter goes some of his length and good looks. Item IV "Spasm" Fitts' position as Mr. Barbour's right' hand man goes to Page Seventy-twg

SILVER AND BLUE QM .IOP We decided to visit England and some of the European countries on our next lap so we turned our heads in that direction and gladly and fear- lessly crossed the roaring Atlantic. We made our first stop in London where we were entertained by the American Ambassador, Dave Hollo- way and his beautiful wife, the form- er Minnie Smith. Mrs. Holloway told us of Claire Williams who is now re- siding in Paris and is Mme. Marcus de Paree, having married a French nobleman shortly after her gradua- tion from Berry. We decided to visit Madame Paree and while in the city of music and revelry we attended a music concert at the Parker-Mulkey music conservatory. We found to our delight J. A. Parker head violinist and J. C. Mulkey director of the or- chestra while the conservatory was founded and operated by these two accomplished young men. We found that we could make the distance from Paris to Geneva in time for the International Good Will Conference which we were so eager to attend since we knew we would find Roy Bolt chairman of the con- vention, as had been announced in the newspapers of all countries for some time. We also hoped to find others of our Berry friends there. We arrived during a speech on "What The Individual Can Do To Further Peace And Happiness Among Nations". We recognized the speak- er as Lollie Bracewell, who we later found out, was working with a board on foreign relations in Japan. Be- fore the day was over we had the pri- vilege of hearing Grady Sanders speak. Grady was engaged in religi- ous work, being pastor of the first church of Shanghai, China. He in- vited us to stop in China on our way back to America, which we gladly decided to do. While in Shanghai we saw J. D. Wallace and his wife, the former Mary Chandler. J. D. was a promi- nent undertaker in the Oriental city and the proud father of 11 little "fat" boys. Since we had been gone a month, we decided to make our way back to our homeland and one morning we found ourselves flying across the Pa- cific, and before we realized it, we were to our own America. We landed in Los Angeles and were met by the mayor of the town, who was none other than our Berry classmate, Harvey Rodgers, who had married Elvie Maxwell. After their college work was completed they had gone to California. There he had made millions in growing seedless oranges and grapefruit, and now was mayor of that great city. Mr. and Mrs. Rodgers invited us to Visit them and one day we motored out to Holly- wood. When our visit came t'o a close, we decided to end our tour by going back to our Alma Mater to see how many of our classmates had stayed to carry on the work of our schools. We found Monroe Guyton at the prow of the mighty ship with all mo- tors running as smoothly as the pur- ring of a monster kitten. Sam Mash- burn was dean of the school. Other workers and teachers were: Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Barnett. Mr. Barnett was Dean of Labor. Mrs. Barnett will be remembered as Miss Thelma Beard. Miss Geraldine Dillard, die- tician at the girls' school. Mr. Hud- Page Seventy-one
